Men's Swimming & Diving Leads at A-10 Championships
Colonials medaled in all three events Wednesday
GENEVA, Ohio - George Washington men's swimming and diving landed medals in all three events Wednesday, including gold in the 200-yard medley relay, to grab the early lead at the Atlantic 10 Championships.
GW claimed gold in the first event of the night with Gustav Hokfelt, Tommi Wolst, Emils Pone and Alexander Auster combining to win the 200 medley relay in 1:27.47. That performance edged the program and conference record the Colonials set last season by six hundredths of a second.
Peter Nachtwey led the GW divers, grabbing silver on the 1-meter board. The freshman scored 298.75 in his A-10 debut, finishing behind only La Salle's Dylan Yurasits. Jake Ortiz (fourth, 296.10) and Nick Tomczyk (eighth, 262.80) also made the championship final, and Nathan Hayward (14th, 179.35) also scored.
GW closed the night with a bronze medal effort in the 800-yard freestyle relay. Max Forstenhaeusler, Adam Drury, Andrew Cho and Moritz Fath finished in 6:34.03 to drop a program record that had stood since 2014.
UP NEXT: The A-10 Championships continue through Saturday. On Thursday, the meet kicks into gear with the first individual swimming events. Preliminary events begin at 10 a.m. with finals starting at 6:30 p.m. The full schedule is available here.
